Cork City Council is actively encouraging locals to spruce up Leeside's iconic quays with the introduction of new grants. This will help people to bring a touch of life and vibrancy to the area!
The grant scheme is available to both residential and commercial buildings, with the grant offering 50% funding for painting and reaching up to €1,500 per building. Buildings with two façades facing a street can potentially receive a maximum of €2,500 in funding.
The painting grant scheme is a strategic effort to boost urban regeneration in historic parts of the city. It seeks to enhance their character & appearance, instilling pride and confidence among the locals.
Over the past 11 years, more than 300 structures have taken advantage of this program which has been re-designed to target different areas of the city. The 12th consecutive year of the program is part of a wider regeneration effort that includes the refurbishment and conservation of vacant sites, as well as The Living City Initiative.
A detailed map has been provided by the city council to identify areas eligible for this year's grant.
Property owners can apply by April 28th by emailing [email protected] or posting a form to the stated address on the website.
